Abstract

Learning style is an accepted concept in psychology. People can learn best if they know their learning styles. Since education is supposed to identify how people learn best, the concept of learning styles remains extremely popular. The present paper makes an earnest attempt to understand learning preferences of PG and UG students through the application of VARK developed by Neil Fleming. Attempt has been made to understand the association between the gender and the VARK mode as well as the VARK style assessed. There is no correlation between gender and the VARK mode as well as the learning style preference and performance. This probably proves that no learning style is higher; learning in the preferred style only makes learning easier. Learning is never a burden if the new information to be grasped is presented in a style that is advantageous to students. The performance in examinations will also subsequentlyimprove.
